About This Book

In this insightful, carefully documented study, Lin Hsiao-ting seeks to demonstrates that the Chinese frontier was the subject neither of concerted aggression on the part of a centralised and indoctrinated Chinese government nor of an ideologically driven nationalist ethnopolitics. Instead, Nationalist sovereignty over Tibet and other border regions was the result of rhetorical grandstanding by Chiang Kai-Shek and his regime. With a glossary of names and terms, bibliographic references and a detailed index.
